Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm Alex. I'm new at this at least for this site but I've done it many times in the past. I really just want see something that has a lot of effort and passion put into it. I love it when people are really into their work and what they think/feel is on the page. I hate reading something that just feels like the author is doing it because they have to... Anyways! I want to help you in any way I can! I will critique it however you want but I will do what I believe is best so yeah...beware of that. If you like my changes, I'm glad I could help and if you don't, well then keep it how you had it before! I'm not here to re-write stories, I'm here to make them more fluid and make more sense. Just be specific what you want critiqued and I'll check on it as well as everything else just for some suggestions!

**Also! I don't want to beta your story with someone else...I want to do it by myself so if you want more than one person betaing your story, please find someone else. I just feel like you wouldn't be considering my suggestions and changes and would ignore me for someone else so please...I work alone C: **

**I will beta read yaoi and yuri. Yaoi is more preferred and I haven't done yuri stories(and I don't read them) but I will for sure give it a shot if you ever wanted to give me a shot. I'm much better with yaoi stories though because I read them more**

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar- I'm pretty good with my grammar and if you do something wrong, be prepared to get some feedback...a lot of feedback. I can't stand when there's bad grammar so I'll definitely be changing that so it'll make more sense

Structure- I'm pretty good at structure with stories. I notice that a lot of people don't know when to start a new paragraph, when to use punctuation correctly, etc. I'm definitely picky about this because I hate it when there are run-on sentences and I can't follow anything. Ugh

Making it believable- I truly TRULY hate it when stories are too perfect. That is literally one of the things I hate most in the world. Nothing is perfect, not the main characters, not the place, and just...no...things are never 100% perfect so when you make them that way, I will change it and make it more believable.

**Also, sometimes people repeat the same thing over and over and over. Don't do that! But if you do, just know that I will help you and find another way for you to write that part so it's not just repeating the same thing with different words. That's always irritating**

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Smut- I love smut. I love to read it, I love to imagine it for writing...but I really suck at it. I can do it but it's not my strong suit. I could maybe suggest something but I'm not exactly best when it comes to writing the full out scene of smut.

Describing- I'm okay I suppose...but I just don't know the best way to go about describing things...especially how people look! Oh god that's definitely the worst part of it...ugh...I can do it but just not as well as I can do other things.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like Humor, Romance, Gore, Adventure, Horror, Angst...really almost everything. I love it all so if I can get into your story, then I'll like it no matter the genre. Although I PREFER romance and humor over everything because I just can't get enough of it

I love smut stuff! I'm not the best at writing it but I can definitely critique it well! I know when stuff is a little over the top, too little or just right.

**Smut and Fluff are the best**

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
1.) I hate it when people use an accent too much...like waaaayyyy over the top to the point where it's just ridiculous

example: "Oh mein gott! I didn't know zhat zis vas going to go zhat vay! Vhat a twist!"

Just...stop

2.) If you don't know how to write...like have never been a good writer and you have issues, I'm sorry but I can't help you. I can't handle poorly written stories...even if your plot is good, presentation is all that matters. You could have the lamest plot in the world and it could turn out great if you can write well and vise versa. You could have the best plot in the world and it could be terrible because of how it's

3.) 3rd grade sentences. No. I won't do it. If you write sentences with like 5 words, barely describing anything or just putting everything too blunt, I think I might hit you.

example: The dog is sitting down. He is a good dog. The dog's name is Fred.

No. Don't do that! Be more descriptive! Be more...I dunno, interesting!

4.) OCs are like my worst nightmare. I don't hate OCs, I really don't but I really hate it when they are a main character. I just have issues imagining them when I know what everyone else is like and how they look/talk/mannerisms/etc. But when the OCs is in the story a lot, I feel like it ruins the fanfic because I just feel that it doesn't go good with the characters anyways. I'm fine with background OC characters, like ones that come in every once in a while and/or have small parts but I can't handle it if they're a main character.
